A quarter of the way through the year, and so much has already happened!
I’ve released The Notary of Gotliss Street, and released After as a paperback. I’ve organised and hosted Burton Sci-Fi and Fantasy Con, and run a Dystopian Worldbuilding workshop at Mansions of the Future in Lincoln.
I’m also in talks about another exciting venture which I can’t talk about yet, and getting on with another which I will talk about in a moment.
First, let’s have a look at the goals I set for March:
- Write my next book to at least 25k words. BIG fail. I only hit 6k words, which is, frankly, a pitiful effort. I have no good excuses either, just that this book is proving really, really difficult to get out of me. It’ll come.
- Update all my mailing list funnels. I’ve been putting this job off for months because it’s such a pain. I’m so happy that I can finally say that I’ve done it!
- Run a successful workshop. Yes, it was fab!
- Plan at least the next 6 months. Another yes!
I suspect April is going to be a bit of a mixed bag. On April 1st, I’m relaunching my worldbuilding podcast, The Great Western Woods, along with a brand new co-host. Really excited about that; particularly because we seem to work so well together. It’s going to be fantastic.
April also brings another dose of Camp NaNoWriMo. I’m really hoping that the NaNo spirit will give me the drive I need to push my current book past the painful point, and through into where the story flows. BUT, that being said, April also brings two weeks of school holidays, which makes things really tricky. So I’m only setting a NaNo goal of 20k words.
Frankly, I’m just going to have to hold on tight in April, and hope it works out ok!
- Complete Camp NaNoWriMo to 20k words
- Launch podcast and website
- Maintain podcast schedule
Frankly, I think that’s enough to aim for in April. Wish me luck!
